Please join Sakura Review as we launch our third issue at the Wonderland Ballroom on Saturday, April 28th at 7PM!
We’re seriously excited about the new issue, so come check it out and hear four of our current contributors –JOE BUETER, WILLIE DAVIS, DAN GUTSTEIN, and MICHAEL SHEEHAN — read their poetry and fiction.
The reading starts at 7PM, but we’ll be there for drinks as early as 6:30PM. It should be a real (literary) party.
